Emil Weber Meek (9-2, 1 NC) has an opponent, date, and location in mind for his next fight, and it is building steam. “Valhalla” wants American Mike Perry next on December 2 at UFC 218.
“I’m on his ass on twitter 😛 And he likes it” says Meek to MMA Viking.
I’d hammer this body builder as well. Can’t lie. Would be fun https://t.co/HcgeBcKNQ7

The two exchanged Tweets, and with both fighters without a next bout is a real possibility.
“Platinum” just won over the weekend against late replacement fighter Alex Reyes, in the co-main event at UFC Pittsburgh. He won by TKO in the first round for a second straight Performance of the Night. He is now ranked #15 after amassing a 4 win and 5 loss record in the Octagon, and the buzz is building about the rising contender.
DOMINANT win for @PlatinumPerry

Meek was scheduled to fight Nordine Taleb (12-4) on the main card at UFC in Sweden but pulled out due to injury. The welterweight had an impressive UFC debut win in December over Jordan Mein, where he won by unanimous decision back at UFC 206. The Frontline Academy fighter looks to build off of his main card win by taking on a known name like Perry.
